Sony shoots down PS Phone

Sony confirms to CVG it's "not currently working on the creation of a PlayStation Phone"

Sony has flat-out denied to CVG that it is working on the heavily-rumoured PlayStation Phone, after fresh speculation did the rounds yesterday.

Rumours were refreshed yesterday when Sony Computer Entertainment's co-chief operating officer, Jim Ryan, reportedly told The Economic Times that convergence between Sony's PlayStation and Ericsson arms to create a portable gaming phone was "definitely plausible". But Sony tells CVG he was misquoted.

"Jim Ryan was in fact misquoted by the Economic Times of India about this issue," a Sony UK spokesperson told us moments ago, adding, "We do have talks with other arms of the Sony family about various topics but I can confirm we are not currently working together on the creation of a PlayStation Phone."

So let that be the end of those rumours... until another Sony big wig says it'd be a brilliant idea.
